that perhaps kim jong-un, the north korean leader, heard the messages being sent by beijing, by russia, and so many others to dial it all back, to try to tone down the rhetoric that was calling for war, a nuclear conflict on the peninsula, even rockets going to the mainland united states. at the same time, some north korean experts were warning that kim jong-un was taking it too far. he was whipping up so much fervor for war inside north korea that when he had to back down, he could lose face, or worse yet, he would have to make good on some of his threats. what is sure at this point is that in the coming days and hours, everyone from washington, to beijing, from seoul to moscow, are going to be waiting, watching, and listening carefully for what comes from pyongyang. back to you. >> all right. jim, thank you very much. >>> the man behind all these threats, kim jong-un, a young leader who since taking the reins from his father further isolated the country from the rest of the world. one describes it as an organized crime family with a blood line of brutal leaders. athena jones has more on new

making process. obviously, there's a lot of speculation. people are wondering, did kim jong-un get the message that was delivered by china, by russia, and so many others, to dial back the rhetoric and all the talk of near war on the peninsula, missile strikes on the continental united states. did he hear that message? is that why we're seeing all of this? even some north korean experts say kim jong-un was painting himself into a corner with all of that. he was whipping up so much national fervor and getting people geared up to go to war that it could backfire on him. he could lose credibility or even worse, he can find himself in a position where he had to make good on some of those threats in order to maintain a standing in the eyes of his own people. there's little doubt, at this point, that over the course of the next hours and days, all eyes from washington to beijing, from here in seoul to moscow, are going to be on north korea and kim jong-un to try to see what he does say, to try to listen closely and find out what the next move of pyongyang will be. alison? >> okay, jim cla

that armistice agreement that fundamentally ended the korean war back in 1953. north korean leader kim jong-un has been down visiting his front-line troops and basically gave them a big war cry, saying to lull the enemy into the caldron, to break their waist and crack their wind pipes, a very visual and motive language, but we are used to that rhetoric coming from him, but while he was rallying the troops, the south koreans and the u.s. military are holding those joint military drills on the korean peninsula. and south korea has said that if there is any military provocation from pyongyang, that it will respond in a resolute and destructive manner, john. >> we're looking at pictures of these military drills just a second ago, and the u.s. and south korea, we have conducted drills like this before, so the question is, why is north korea really reacting so acongreggres here? >> reporter: it's a great question, john, because as you say, this is something that happens every single year. the americans and the south koreans, they are using some pretty advanced weaponry, the f-52 stealth, the b-52 bo
